“Love at first sight is easy to understand; it’s when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.”
As you may recall, I proposed to my high school sweetheart several months ago. And on Saturday, we went ahead, walked down the aisle, and made it all official. Yes, I am a married man and I couldn’t be happier for it. Belated cash gifts via PayPal will be gladly accepted. But I digress.
“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.” – Mignon McLaughlin
Certainly, initial attraction is important, but it is not enough to sustain a relationship over the long haul. The road is rocky and you’ll hit a few obstacles, but will you stick with it? Will you continue to fall in love with the same person over and over again?
Even in a dysfunctional relationship like that of Al and Peggy Bundy, they somehow managed to stay together. That says something. I hope I’m not at the Bundy level of dysfunction, but I do look forward to at least that level of lifelong dedication.
